Gingerbread Cheesecake Cookies

Our friends at Food Network are at it again but instead of Virtual Thanksgiving, this time we’re all doing a cookie swap. Now we realize it says right in the recipe that we wouldn’t use it for cookie swap purposes. It’s not really our thing. But then we realized just how hard these cookies rock, and felt compelled to show them off. 

Save your easily flattened macarons and rock-hard oatmeal raisin cookies for someone who doesn’t like gingerbread or cheesecake, because we took two sweet things and rolled them into one. What do you mean we’ve been doing that with pancakes for months? Oh, so we have. But that’s because we discovered that hybrid desserts of mixed-sweets backgrounds turn out to be the hottest ones of all. No offense to the other contenders, of course. I mean, if Oprah says her sugar cookies are the best, who are we to argue?
